There are three main Research Groups that are involved with cyber security:
1. The Software Engineering & Information Systems Group https://sep.cs.ut.ee/Main/HomePage
The Software Engineering & Information Systems Group at University of Tartu's Institute of Computer Science conducts research and teaching in the field of software and information systems engineering with an emphasis on data science methods for business process management and software process improvement.
In addition to implementing national and European research projects, the group is engaged in the Software Technology and Applications Competence Center - an industry-driven R&D that aims to develop next-generation solutions in the fields of data mining and software services.
The group is also responsible for the International Masters of Software Engineering and a number of software engineering courses at the undergraduate level.
2. The Cryptography Research Group https://crypto.cs.ut.ee/
The group is responsible for the teaching of cryptography, information security, and various parts of theoretical computer science in the Institute of Computer Science. The cryptography group conducts research into cryptography, in particular into the following areas:
- Cryptographic protocol design, including e-voting, privacy-preserving data mining, secure computation, zero-knowledge
- Cryptographic protocol analysis, symbolic cryptography
- Quantum cryptography
- Theory of cryptography
The group is responsible for the teaching of cryptography, information security, and various parts of theoretical computer science in the Institute of Computer Science.
3. The Applied Cyber Security Research Group https://acs.cs.ut.ee/
This research group performs highly practical research in the field of cybersecurity, evaluating the security of the technology solutions used in our everyday life. Their focus is especially directed towards the technology solutions of significant public interest that are used in Estonia. This includes electronic identity (ID cards and Mobile-ID), digital signatures, internet voting and other aspects.
